$4.5 million grant to fund mental health supports for students

Schools in Muskegon County just learned their students will receive a boost in mental health supports through a new, five year, 4.5 million dollar grant from the United States Department of Education. The Muskegon Area Intermediate School District (MAISD) is one of about 20 educational organizations selected nationally to earn the “Project Prevent” grant. The grant is designed to help prevent youth violence and the impact of violence in communities by integrating mental health supports in schools.
